Winemaker Notes

Dark garnet color. Aromas and flavors of stone fruit and especially cherry, even kirsh as you age. The wines are structured, mineral and very good. Beautiful spicy note.

The wines of Beaujolais are wines of character and fruit. The Morgon accompanies marvelously simple and local cuisine, and especially the meat dishes: game birds, poultry, grilled meats, meats in sauces and some cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Spectator
Glossy and focused, with cherry and raspberry notes showing nice purity and accents of anise, granite and white pepper. Dusty earth and dried herb notes offer a savory touch through the lightly tannic finish. Drink now through 2026.

Dominique Piron, France
Dominique Piron Winery Image
Dominique Piron’s family has been growing grapes here since the 16th century, and Dominique took over the estate in 1971. Working side by side with his American wife, enologist Kristine Mary, the Pirons farm 45 hectares of vineyards scattered among several different crus in Beaujolais, namely Morgon, Chénas, Brouilly, Régnié and Moulin-à-Vent. They own some parcels, rent others, and also buy 20-hectares worth of carefully selected grapes from their neighbors. Regardless of where the grapes are sourced, the Pirons are responsible for every aspect of quality-control from the vineyard management to the marketing of the finished wine. They take such great care of each of their crus that even the simple Beaujolais and Beaujolais-Villages wines are carefully selected from single-vineyard parcels. Each of their terroirs is unique, yet they are all granite-based soils—the ideal grounding for the Gamay grape. The Pirons farm sustainably, although they have also been experimenting with organic methods to achieve a rich biodiversity in the vineyards.

Beaujolais Wine

Burgundy, France

The bucolic region often identified as the southern part of Burgundy, Beaujolais actually doesn’t have a whole lot in common with the rest of the region in terms of climate, soil types and grape varieties. Beaujolais achieves its own identity with variations on style of one grape, Gamay.

Gamay was actually grown throughout all of Burgundy until 1395 when the Duke of Burgundy banished it south, making room for Pinot noir to inhabit all of the “superior” hillsides of Burgundy proper. This was good news for Gamay as it produces a much better wine in the granitic soils of Beaujolais, compared with the limestone escarpments of the Côte d’Or.

Four styles of Beaujolais exist though most is sold under the basic Beaujolais appellation. The simplest, and one that has regrettably given the region a subpar reputation, is Beaujolais Nouveau. This is the wine that is made using carbonic maceration (a quick fermentation that results in sweet aromas) and is released on the third Thursday of November in the same year as harvest. It's meant to drink young and is flirty, fruity and fun. The rest of Beaujolais is where the serious wines are found. Beaujolais-Villages, which must come from the hilly northern part of the region, offer reasonable values with some gems among them. The superior section are the cru vineyards coming from ten distinct communes: St-Amour, Juliénas, Chénas, Moulin-à-Vent, Fleurie, Chiroubles, Morgon, Regnié, Brouilly, and Côte de Brouilly. Any cru Beajolais will have its commune name prominent on the label.

Delightfully playful, but also capable of impressive gravitas, Gamay is responsible for juicy, berry-packed wines. From Beaujolais, Gamay generally has three classes: Beaujolais Nouveau, a decidedly young, fruit-driven wine, Beaujolais Villages and Cru Beaujolais. The Villages and Crus are highly ranked grape growing communes whose wines are capable of improving with age whereas Nouveau, released two months after harvest, is intended for immediate consumption. Somm Secret—The ten different Crus have their own distinct personalities—Fleurie is delicate and floral, Côte de Brouilly is concentrated and elegant and Morgon is structured and age-worthy.
